The James Webb Space Telescope Looks Deeper into the Universe Than Ever

The moment the entire community of astronomers is waiting for will soon arrive. On July 12, NASA will show to the world the first full-color photos that the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has captured from looking deep into the Cosmos.

JWST will try to uncover crucial aspects regarding the evolution of galaxies and stars. The telescope will look deeper into the unknown than any other telescope has done it before. Astronomers even hope to find some traces of alien life, which is, after all, one of the main goals of space agencies in general.

JWST snapped an unprecedented photo of the Universe

NASA suggests through the voice of Thomas Zurbuchen, who is an associate administrator for science missions that James Webb has already snapped the deepest image of our Cosmos. We already know that astronomers can’t possibly look as far away (and automatically) as back in time until the moment of the Big Bang to see what exactly happened there. It will see if they can now break that barrier. 

Zurbuchen said, as Mashable quotes:

It’s an emotional moment when you see nature suddenly releasing some of its secrets,

It’s not an image. It’s a new worldview.

Thomas Zurbuchen also said a few days ago, as Futurism.com quotes:

The images are being taken right now,

There is already some amazing science in the can, and some others are yet to be taken as we go forward. We are in the middle of getting the history-making data down.

James Webb is the most powerful space telescope that was ever built until now, and it was launched in late 2021 after many delays. 

Good things come to those who wait, says an old proverb. Perhaps what JWST has to reveal on July 12 won’t please every single astronomy lover out there, but you also can’t have your cake and eat it too.
